Had to get my almost 16 year old teenager a ride and didn't want to give up my Impala.. nor have her rolling around in a compact. She gets her height from me.. and is already 5'9. I told her the budget was $22K with no sports cars (she wanted a damn Camaro... a 16 year old.. with a Camaro) I said "no..." so she looked at used everything else. I'm really proud of her because she looked at a Fusion, Malibu, Escape, an '07 SRX (yes the Boxy one) a used CTS, a 300.. and finally said to me "Daddy.. I kno it has to be American.. and I grew up with GM.. so how about an Equinox? Only one thing.. its gotta be white or silver and the Emblem has to match the paint or the wheels"
Did some calling around to a few cats I kno and one of my old buds.. who still sells Chevys told me he just got in a 'Nox.. AWD, in white.. and it was Certified. Asking price was $22,800 with 23K on the ODO. I went down to check it out and drove away for $20K OTD cash. She doesn't actually get her license for a few months more, so I will be driving it most likely for that time to learn its ways.. not to mention keep some miles off the Impala which is now at 41K

I texted her in school to let her kno it was here and she can't wait to get down here to see it this weekend. Kept texting me "I Love U Daddy.. I Love U Daddy... I Love U Daddy...." I love that kid
